Data Entry Job – SCAM!

Extreme Lower back/leg pain
I am posting this for my husband. He underwent a L5-S1 fusion in august of 2009. Since that time he still experiences severe back and leg pain. He went through PT and is now seeing a pain management doctor, but nothing seems to help to ease the pain. Last week while walking down the hallway in our home he lost all feeling in his legs and fell to the floor. His legs spasmed for about 2 minutes before stoping. He could not feel anything in his legs for about 1 hour. The pain was so bad that we once again visited the ER. The doctor there gave a shot for pain, did x-rays and a ct scan and told him that everything looked fine. We left with him still in pain and the pain has yet to ease up. He has told me that he feels like he has herniated another disc in his back. I was just wondering if anyone else has ever experienced the complete lose of feeling and if so what the doctors had for an explaination.
Thank you for your time.
